Eliran Dvash(owner/manager) was welcoming and gracious. We showed up very late after being lost(our fault). Signs to Green Forest need to be bigger and a night /light reflective paint should be used(drove past it, three times!). Few street lights made it hard to see the sign at 10:pm. Needless to say, we pulled up tired and hungry. Our reservations had been held(even though no $$$ had exchanged hands/no credit card hold). He prefers to be paid in local currency/no credit cards(no $$ or information exchanged hands at that late hour though- He told us to please, make ourselves comfortable and we would talk in the morning about that!). We were in our room, within 5 minutes of arriving and having dinner in fifteen minutes (La Fogata...a short walk up the road:serviceable pizza, instead go for the pasta or chicken).. We woke up to a complimentary breakfast(Chef Eliran), delicious and unexpected. I was delighted & surprised to find a river behind the property and a horse named Peligroso(his) grazing out front. The river is perfect/private for cooling off, siesta or picnic and Eliran promised me, no crocodiles(he killed them all!). The place is rustic/cabina with a great outdoor shower(I loved/used it after a great horse ride with Rosario!), go to a resort if you want/expect more. For the heat, humidity and casual nature of Uvita, the Green Forest is perfect for us(mature nature loving couple). Great place for everyone, kids can be kids(nothing is "delicate", natural safe space, river & small friendly dogs on premises) and Eliran can arrange any tour/lesson you may be interested in. All very affordable. We loved the place, and would be delighted to call it home again.
